Emmerdale fans realised where they’d seen Al Chapman before tonight – on the hit BBC comedy Miranda.
Played by Michael Wildman, Al has been a fixture in the Yorkshire dales since August.
Before that, he played Miranda Hart’s personal trainer on the show, keeping her fit in the gym.
Taking to Twitter, stunned Emmerdale fans picked up on Michael’s acting history.
One said: “Can’t take Al seriously since I realised he’s the gym instructor on Miranda.”
A second added: “I can’t see Al on Emmerdale without hearing him say “Contracts foolproof” in Miranda.”
While a third remarked: “Yep, back to the Gym on Miranda. “
Emmerdale airs on weekdays at 7pm on ITV.
